Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

One of the most remarkable turnabouts in the art communities has been the resurgence of interest in classicism and academicism in every form from avante-garde painting to the design of houses and office buildings. This book puts all of this on the map in the considered style that has made Jencks one of the most sought-after commentators on the contemporary art scene. Whether or not one views this vein of art critically as a specious effluent of Neoconservatism or enthusiastically as Jencks does, as a vital reinterpretation of the Western artistic patrimony, this tome offers an understandable, worldwide survey. It contains over 300 sharp color illustrations. Peter Kaufman, Suffolk Community Coll. Libs., Selden, N.Y.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I quoted this book and Charles Jencks in my own book, also available on Amazon, A TREASURED KEEPSAKE OF ART: Classical Sonnets, Verse and Essays, pp iii, 68, 69, 75, 81. This is an invaluable source book to a much-misunderstood type of art, majestic realism, revived every 80 years in our civilization, since Phidias.
